Technology Enhanced Classrooms (TEC)

AKA: Smart Classrooms

Nearly every classroom at CSUMB is technology-enhanced ("smart"). These rooms include a digital projector, workstation, laptop connection, VCR and AV equipment.

AV Cabinet

The majority of TEC's at CSUMB have their equipment stored in an AV cabinet. In order to access the AV cabinet, you need a special key called Marlok. You do not need access to the cabinet to use the projector with the workstation.
